The codes can only be reported for facility (technical) services. Items and services described by C codes may be eligible for transitional passthrough payments for OPPS hospitals, have separate Ambulatory Payment Classification (APC) payments, or be packaged. Hospitals are encouraged to report all applicable C codes regardless of payment status to ensure that the cost of the device associated with the procedure is reflected in claims data as this will determine future payment rates.
